The only really enjoyable Episode of the Fourth Season
9 February 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I know most of the people who still watch the fourth season of Heroes would disagree with me. The episode doesn't really move the plot forward (if there really is plot). But nonetheless I found it one of the more enjoyable episode of the season. I especially liked the Hiro trial scene and having Hiro facing off against his old nemesis Adam Monroe (david anders) -the character was killed off way to soon in the awful third season. The scenes of Robert Knepper and his long lost love Vanessa were kind of cheesy but it still shows us the great acting ability of Knepper. Overall it was a enjoyable episode. Only one minor point was the Sylar/Claire storyline. It seems that the writers just can't decide what to do with Sylar. It's also a shame that Claire wasn't killed off in the third season (instead of Adam Monroe) because she's now the most annoying character on the show.
